General Tso’s Chicken

While I do like making recipes from scratch and using ingredients individually to make something beautiful, sometimes you need to cheat and make your life easier. This recipe is quick and perfect for those busy days. General Tso’s sauce is available in all supermarkets and is a fantastic sauce to cook chicken and veggies in. It has a great sweet and sour flavor and is an amalgamation of soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger and a host of other ingredients. Traditionally, General Tso’s chicken is deep fried. My version is pan fried with no batter or flour,so it’s generally healthier. I, also add some cayenne and red chili flakes for some heat because why not?
